This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

This little book lays no claim to any special merit 
beyond furnishing in convenient form some material for 
those beginning to study the Avesta. As it is intended 
merely for an introduction, and being designed as the 
first of a series of reading books, the number of pages 
of texts has been limited. The selections here given arc 
such as may easily be mastered by a class in one college 
term; the beginner, moreover, always finds a certain de- 
gree of pleasure and satisfaction in a book that can be 
read through in a comparatively short time» and he feels 
he is making a certain amount of progress Avhen another 
)M)ok has to be taken up. With that in view, a second 
volume is being prepared, this will contain longer texts 
and will be so arranged as to imply a step in advance. 

The present selections in prose and verse, are fairly 
representative, as far as excerpts can be, of Yasna, Vis- 
parad, Yasht, and Vendidad. The chapters Ys. 26 and 57 
are given complete. The passage from Vd. xg has the 
advantage of presenting a specimen of texts in which 
grammatical decay is to be observed. 

The notes in general have been made brief and con- 
cise, but it is hoped that beside being explanatory they 
will also prove useful in giving the student an occasional

hint regarding books of reference, and will thus interest 
him in the literature of the subject. A brief list of useful 
books has already been given in Avesta Grammar Part i, 
p. xl-xlii. Attention is now also called to the new Avesta 
translation by Darmesteter, Le Zend-Avesta (3 volumes, 
Paris 1892-3), the last two volumes of which reached me 
after the greater part of the present book was already in 
press; I was pleased, however, to note several co-incidences 
in interpretation of certain Yasht and Vendidad passages. 

The vocabulary has been made a little more full 
perhaps than is necessary; but this was done from a de- 
sire to give the beginner a fair start. It seemed advis- 
able, for example, to add frequent grammatical references, 
and to designate the verb forms in full. A slightly dif- 
ferent plan will be followed in the Second Series. 

With regard to the etymologies in the vocabulary, 
comparison has been confined to Sanskrit, Old Persian, 
Pahlavi, and New Persian. It is presupposed, of course, 
that the student has made some progress in Sanskrit. The 
comparisons with Old Persian, Pahlavi and New Persian 
are added, not at all with the idea tliat they will be 
mastered by a beginner, but in order to show the pupil 
the importance of the Iranian as well as the Sanskrit 
side of interpretation, and to familiarize him with the 
studies next akin to his subject. Old Persian is easily 
mastered after Avestan, and the earnest student will soon 
discover that the well-equipped scholar can not of course 
long dispense with Pahlavi and New Persian. The * tradi- 
tional' and * comparative ' method must go hand in hand. 

In preparing the book I have had before me VV. Geigcr's 
Handbuch der Awestasprache, the manual with which I 
first began my Avesta studies. Of course C. de Harlez' 

Digitized by 


Preface. vii 

Manuel de VAvesta, and Bartholomae's Altiranische Dia- 
lekte have been often consulted. Justi's Handbuch der 
Zendsprache was necessarily used at every step; and 
Lanman's admirable Sanskrit Reader furnished many a 
hint or apt English rendering for kindred Avesta-Sanskrit 
words. The material for comparison with Old Persian 
was drawn from Spiegel's Altpersische Keilinschriften ; 
and that for comparison with Pahlavi words, mainly 
from West's Glossary and Index of Arda Vtraf. In 
the case of New Persian, reference was made to Vullefs' 
Lexicon Persico-Latinum and to Palmer's Persian-English 
Dictionary. Paul Horn's new Grundriss der Neupersislhen 
Etymologic (Strassburg 1893) came late but liappily as I 
was reading the final revision of the proof-sheets of the 
vocabulary ; from tliis source, therefore, a number of good 
additions were made. To each of the above authors I 
desire to made cordial acknowledgment. To my friend 
Professor Karl F. Geldner my sincerest thanks as always 
are due. 

With this word* and with the hope that scholars will 
give their helpful criticism, corrections and suggestions, 
which I shall gladly and personally acknowledge, this little 
Avesta Reader is started on its course.

Yasna xx Notes. 

General Remarke. On the book of the Yasna and its divisions, 
tec <rr. Introd. p. xvii §13. The present selection from it is one of 
three chapters, Ys. g, xo, 11, which were specially recited in preparing the 
Haoma as part of the sacrifice. The verses of this short chapter, mingled 
with the prose lines of the liturgy, formed the conclusion of the Haoma 
ritual. The sacred wine was then drunk by the priest, and the perfor- 
mance of the Yasna sacrifice continued. 

The introductory verses here given narrate how three good creatures, 
if misused, will utter imprecations ; the closing . stanzas are in praise of 
liaoma. The Metre may be compared with the Sanskrit fUka but is 
sometimes defective; occasionally it reminds one of the Kalwala verse of 
Longfellow's Hiawatha. See Gn Part II, chi^. on Metre. 

Ys. xi.i. 

gaul as pas c a kaomasea: the inference is plausible that the three 
creatures are respectively typical of the three classes, peasant, war- 
rior, priest. 

kasidm ba^iahe: the Phi. Vers, renders 'who dost not give me as a 
precious thing (to worthy people)'. — See Vocabulary. 

Ys. X1.2. • 

as pi haidr9m: apparently the second, or warrior class is here alluded 

to — see above. 
mqm sSvar*: on the construction, cf. Gr, § 930. 
po^rumaUi .... ka rfay^: either in the race or in battle. 

Ys. X1.3. 
kSiar9m: presumably an allusion to the priest who does not fulfil 

his duty. 
a*»iHuf9m ti drays At: the Phi. Vers, renders * who witholdesl me 
from being prepared'. 

Ys. II.4- 
pi la: Abura Macda is of course to he understood (sec next paragraph). 

Ys. X1.6.

Yasna 57 Notes. 

General Remark. Two Yashts (Vs. 57, Vt. xz) are dedicated to 
Sraosha the divinity of Religious Obedience and Devotion. The latter 
Yasht (Yt. zz) is commonly termed Srosh Yasht ffSdhdkht and Is rather 
the more liturgical of the two. The former, our present selection (Ys. 57), 
is the Srdsh Yatht si shaba or 'Srosh Yasht of the Three Nights', since it 
is used at funeral ceremonies during the three nights after the decease, 
as weU as being in common use at the sacrifice. See Darmesteter, Le Zend- 
Avesta, vol. L p. 358. The MSS. generally divide this Yasna into thirteen 
Kardes *sectioxis', each of which closes with the repetition of a formula. 

Yb. 57.1. 

ajfftn twhu: the opening verse beginning with these words, consists 
merely of formulas; it is therefore here omitted.

pMya P'wdr'itSra: a Dvandva compound {Gr, § 879 expl.), and it re- 
fers apparently, to Mithra and Rashnu, the keeper and the judge at 
the Cinvat IMdge after death. It seems at least reasonable to regard 
Mithra (cf. Yt. zo) as the watchful guardian (pdyu); it is fair to pre- 
sume that Rashnu the Just (cf. Yt. X2), the divinity who weighs in the 
balance tlie deeds of men, may be the p^r»Uar who has the decision. 
The Phi. Vers., moreover, supports the view as it actually glosses the 
phrase as pAnak barJnkar Mitro *the keeper and former Mithra'; it 
fails to recognize the dual of the Dvandva, treats the words as sin- 
gular, and hence makes no mention of Rashnu.

Yasht 5 (1-9; 132) Notes. 

General Remarks. The Ab&n Yasht 'Yasht of Waters' from' which 
the selection is taken, is one of the longest of the Yashts, cf. Gr. Introd. 
p. xviii § 15. It celebrates the praises of Ardvi Sura Anfthita, the Celestial 
Stream and Goddess of Waters, describes her descent from the heaveijs, 
and her worship, and closes with at description of her appearance. 

The worship of Ardvi Sura AnSlhita was widely spread in the East. 
She appears as Anfthata in the cuneiform inscription of the Persian king 
Artaxerxes (4th century B.C.); her name (Avdtxt^) is found in Strabo, 
Plutarch, etc., and she became familiar in Greece as Yenus Anahita (*Aqppo- 
dtxijc, Avat-ctc). 

Only the opening sections and closing verse of the Yasht are 
here given.

ki%var*na: the reading of this word, as well as its meaning, is not clear. 
By some, kttsuar^na has been read and explained as *with mighty 
power'. Perhaps the word is , to be connected with A/sif- Hongue* 
(q. v.) and y^ir- ^rnove*, aod to be referred to Ormazd's act of creat- 
ing by a mere word, a movement of the tongue.

kaomayA: thus goo<l MS. authority; the form is perhaps to be explained 
as borrowed from such a passage as Yt 14.5 (see below), Ny. 4.9 etc. 
In Yt. 14.5, Ny. 4*9, kaomayi is properly nom. plur.; it agrees with 
the subject of yazama^tU and alludes to the worshippers or officiating 
priests. From such formulaic passages with yatamaide (pi.), the form 
kaemayd (pL) seems to have been transferred to those like Ny. z.i6 
yazdi (sg.) and the present Yt. 5.9, where the plural form haomayo is 
not appropriate. If, however, kaoma yo ^aiva be read with certain 
MSS., it probably must be explained as kaoma yd (asH) gava, which 
is open to objection. 

ye^kjf kMtum: this formula is commonly foun«i at the end of the Yasna 
chapters, cf. Ys. 4.26, Ys. 5.6. It is a later imitation of GAv. Ys. 51.22. 
See Gr* Introd. p. xviii § 13 end.

Yasht 14(1-17) Notes. 

0«A«rml Remark. Verethraghna, or Bahri&m, the Genius of Victory, 
to whom this Yasht u dedicated, corresponds in certain respects to Indra 
Vftrahan of the Hindu mythology. (le may in fact be regarded as the 
Iranian reflex of the latter. 

The Yasht, of which only the opening is here given, contains some 
64 paragraphs. The ten incamattoBs in which Vereihraghna appeared be* 
fore Zoroaster are described; the powers which the divinity bestows upon 
his worshippers are enumerated; his glorification is enjoined.

Vendidad 3 (23-29) Notes. 

Oetieral Remarks. The 3rd Fargard of the Vendidad comprises 
42 sections; it describes various places and persons that delight or grieve 
the earth (conceived of as a divinity); it pictures the blessings of agri- 
culture and of grain-raising; and closes with various prescriptions relating 
to the Holy JLaw and its observance. The present selection is in praise 
of agriculture.

this connection.

Vendidad 6 (44-51) Notes. 

General Remarks. In the development of the Zoroastrian religion 
the worship of the elements played an important part. The purity of the 
ear^h, fire, and water, must not be defiled, especially not by contact with 
a corpse. Hence arose that peculiar mode of disposing of the dead, which 
has ever been a characteristic mark of the Parsi religion. 

The body (tanu), according to the present prescription, is to be 
carried to some high place, fastened (nidar'zayptt), and left to the dogs 
and birds to devour. The bones (azdbiS) were afterwards taken to a 
vault or receiver (uzdana) and preserved in some sort of a receptacle that 
recalls the antiquarian remains of the astdiUin or 'bone-receptacles' that 
have been found in Persia. 

The present selection does not du-ectly mention the Dakhma (da^ma)^ 
but the word appears elsewhere in the Vendidad. The two-fold treatment 
of the body (tana) and the bones (azdfni) may practically be paralleled 
in the modern Dakhmas, or Towers of Silence. 

For descriptions of the Towers of Silence in Bombay, see Dosabhai 
Framji Karaka's History of the Parsis, vol. i. p. 199 seq.; Ragozin's Media, 
P* 125; Peshotan* and Geiger's Eastern Iranians, vol. i. p. 90 seq.

use of self-castigation to drive out the demon that h«s temporarily 
taken possession of the body is familiar in religious austerities. The 
upHzana, however, have been interpreted as referring to the killing 
of so and so many noxious animals (cf. Hdt. X..14O, Vd. z6.I2). .The 
term later cante to have a monetary sense; sins could be compensated 
for by a payment of money to the priests.

marks above.

the bones were placed and preserved in receptacles (cf. asdmnifva, etc.).

'Sone-receptacles*. See Casartelli, Astodam and Av. Funtral JfHes,

Vendidad zg (5-10) Notes. 

Oaneral Remttrk. The present little extract from the 19th Vendidad 
presents something of a parallel to the struggle of Buddha with Mftra, or 
to the temptation of our Saviour by Satan. 

Angra Mainyu through the agency of one of his fiends had tried to 
slay Zoroaster, but the latter combats him. Whereupon the Spiritual Enemy 
himself tempts the master to renounce the good religion and follow him; 
he is repulsed, however, by 2Soroaster. 

. The material of the whole chapter is doubtless old, but signs of 
grammatical decay are so evident that its composition at loast must 
be later. Sec Gr, § 903.

from safely crossing the Chinvat Bridge. When a person be- 
comes p9i$*tanu-, piiSt^dra^, he is practically condemned as one 
possessed; atonement by castigation etc. (see upSzana-) is ne-
